Forum Promotes Career Modeling as Tool for Businesses and Individuals

Studies are showing that five out of six adults in North America are considering changing jobs. For individuals, this means poor job satisfaction and limited career growth. For businesses, it means worries about team-member retention and low productivity. Both individuals and companies often simply lack a structured way to think about the complexities involved with career planning. Applying business-model thinking to a career model provides a structured process that can help firms retain team members and give individuals clarity for the future. And, as it turns out, working with such models on an ongoing basis also opens up new opportunities never before imagined within a company.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
